BOSTON, MA and SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire -09/06/12)- Enterprise mobile application management (MAM) pioneer Apperian today announced it has partnered with Mocana, the leader in smart device and mobile application security to fully integrate Mocana's Mobile App Protection™ (MAP) product into Apperian's Enterprise App Service Environment (EASE) platform. Available now, the new premium EASE capability -- called "App Wrapping" -- is one of the mobile application management industry's first real solutions that delivers true self-defending app security wrapping for enterprise apps, on both managed and unmanaged devices.
The Mocana MAP product's patent-pending app security-wrapping technology provides the ability to secure corporate apps and associated data, enabling customers to safely deploy apps to BYOD smart phones and tablets. Enterprises using Apperian's EASE platform with App Wrapping now have the ability to add new, fine-grained security policies such as data encryption, secure copy/paste control, secure data in transit via MAP's app-level VPN and passphrase authentication into existing apps without source code changes. Once wrapped, apps' corporate data is protected, even outside of the enterprise.
"Right now we're hearing from many companies struggling with issues associated with securing data on enterprise-owned devices and personal devices. That's why Apperian's EASE solution is essential for enterprise mobility, regardless of a company's stance on mobile device management. We provide the flexibility to deploy and fully manage corporate mobile apps with a complete mobile application management solution, and deliver the peace of mind that comes from knowing corporate data within those apps is completely secure," said Alan Murray, Apperian senior vice president of product. "App Wrapping, powered by Mocana MAP technology, gives our customers access to this wrapping technology, provides best-in-class extra security capabilities and enables businesses to manage and protect data on any corporate, employee, partner or customer-owned device."
The addition of App Wrapping powered by Mocana MAP completes Apperian's vision of the new mobile application lifecycle. The EASE platform establishes a new industry baseline on which mobile application management solutions are evaluated on the completeness of their offering. Apperian's EASE platform encapsulates a complete process -- from app sourcing to deployment. This includes processes for preparing those apps by doing malware checks and auditing the code; securing the apps before they go out by enabling them to encrypt their own data, and attaching an MDM profile if needed; managing the app with compliance reporting; allowing enterprise single sign-on and role-based access or device management; and finally publishing them and soliciting user feedback, enabling ratings and crowd sourcing, pushing them to a custom catalog and providing the ability to "unpublish" them.
"Mocana MAP complements market-leading mobile management platforms to provide best-in-class data protection across both iOS and Android devices, and the Apperian EASE platform is one of the industry's most comprehensive solutions for real mobile application management because it was developed by the company that defined the space," said Kurt Stammberger, CISSP, vice president of market development at Mocana. "Mocana shares Apperian's vision for a new application lifecycle management standard. Now enterprises with complex mobility requirements can come to one source to ensure the viability, management and security of their mobile applications, regardless of whether they have control of the underlying device or not. As Mocana MAP evolves and adds new capabilities, customers of Apperian EASE will be able to instantly leverage MAP's updates and stay ahead in the fast-changing app security ecosystem."
